Fire Training Info

The best way to ensure commercial kitchen fire safety is to train staff that are working around the fire hazards and kitchen hood suppression systems. We provide both classroom and hands-on training opportunities. Our extensive kitchen fire safety training includes teaching which fire extinguishers to use on what fires, operation of pull stations, proper maintenance and care of the hood system, importance of keeping exhaust system clean, and how to react quickly and what to do in the event of a kitchen fire.
Class D fire training consists of a classroom portion followed by a live burn training. The Classroom portion will include how these extinguishers are different from all other types, the dangers associated with metal fires, and live videos of metal fires. This training is capped off with a live metal fire in controlled settings where all participants will have the opportunity to extinguish a fire while the instructor provides some helpful tips and tricks to battle these truly different fires.
This simulator is an intelligent software-based training system that displays a fire on a special screen. This fire is controlled by the instructor to respond just like a real Class A, Class B, or Class C fire and uses real feeling fire extinguishers equipped with laser emitters to put the fire out. This new system can also be programmed by pulling a fire alarm, calling 911 or a customer’s special number, and multiple other scenarios as the customer requests. Advantages of this system are that all training can occur indoor and can include integrated training props.
Inside training consists of a PowerPoint presentation where all attendees will go over the different types of fire extinguishers and learn how it works followed by Questions and Answers period. This portion includes when, how, and what class of extinguisher to use for different types of fires. More importantly, it also goes into what types of fires NOT to use the wrong extinguisher on. While not preferred this can count as the minimum OSHA yearly required training at some businesses.
Live fire involves a real Class B fire in a controlled setting. This is the best type of training as it incorporates the inside training with a true fire in real but controlled conditions. Koorsen will bring all materials for this activity including a burn pan, extinguishers, and fuel. The minimum space requirement is 25’ distance from all buildings, power lines, vehicles, and flammable materials. In Marion County, this training needs a minimum of 2 weeks prior notice for permits. Other areas differ on permitting requirements. This training is preferred not to be done in an area around grass, ABC powder will kill grass and plants by over nitrogenizing the soil. Perennials such as grass will however come back strong and green in the future.
